SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core is a high performance solution

SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core is a particularly powerful and popular solution for working with large amounts of data and databases. The solution has been available to users for many years and inspires with innovative techniques and practical features. This applies, for example, to security. Especially with data and access to databases via a server, protection plays a central role. Effective encryptions and safeguards prevent unauthorized access and are thus available for secure use.

But the other options are also convincing across the board. This applies, for example, to the areas of virtualization or collaboration with the cloud. The manufacturer Microsoft already laid the foundation for this in 2012 with the integration of the Azure interface, i.e. a possibility for effective collaboration with its own cloud service. With the help of the connection and the additional options for virtualization, the need can always be individually adapted to enable effective use.

The new version offers customers many revisions and improved performance

SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core brings with it many new features and extensively revised functions so that work can be done even more effectively. This is already evident when looking at the available variants. It was to be expected, but the previously offered Business Intelligence version is no longer available for the server since 2016. The offering now consists of the three main variants Enterprise, Standard and Express. The Express solution continues to take on the task of providing suitable features, especially for smaller companies.

From a technical point of view, SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core, for example, comes with a comprehensive performance optimization. Thanks to this, you can save a lot of time and a lot of effort in daily use. You can rely on faster data retrieval, which is now supposed to be 100 times faster. General applications can be used 30 times faster after all, this should be quite noticeable. Especially in view of the increasing amount of data and the enormous importance of comprehensive files in everyday life, these optimizations play a central role. At the same time, Microsoft is also working on other areas, for example by integrating Polybase. This now allows SQL queries over Hadoop files. Historical data can now be outsourced to Azure thanks to the new Stretch Database function, so that nothing should stand in the way of effective work.

Get started now with the right licensing for SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core

But before you can get started with the actual work, you need to think about the right licensing. Here, Microsoft continues the concept of core licensing introduced in 2012. So, if you wish, you license the individual processor cores of the server. Considering the increasing performance of processors and servers, this change in licenses is only a logical consequence. Within the scope of the Core licenses, you benefit from unlimited access to the practical SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core. Count on extensive usage. At the same time, you no longer have to worry about the otherwise required access licenses with the purchase of the Core licenses, these are completely omitted with this variant. Note, however, that the core licenses are only ever purchased in a double pack, regardless of the actual number of cores. In addition, Microsoft prescribes the purchase of at least four licenses per CPU for this type of licensing; the actual number also plays a subordinate role here. So if you use one of the rare dual-core CPUs, you still have to buy four licenses.

Our tip: Before purchasing SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core licenses, consider carefully whether the other option might also be suitable for you. After all, Microsoft continues to offer the alternative in the form of server and access licenses, especially for the standard variant. These are the so-called CALs, i.e. Client Access Licenses. These must be purchased in addition to the server license, but offer individual and needs-based licensing. Especially in smaller companies with few employees, this consideration can pay off. You have the choice between so-called Device CALs and User CALs. The SQL Server 2016 Standard Device CALs are assigned to a fixed device, from which all employees can then access the server equally. With the SQL Server 2016 Standard User CAL user CALs, on the other hand, you license a fixed employee. This employee can then use the server from all different devices without any restrictions, making him or her much more flexible in everyday life.

Before making a purchase, weigh up the options and your own needs around SQL Server 2016 Standard 2 Core licenses and other variants very carefully. Because a subsequent change or a reallocation of the licenses is no longer possible with SQL Server 2016.

How do our prices come about?

The goods offered by us are activation keys which were originally delivered by the respective owners to a first purchaser. This person paid the corresponding remuneration to the owner and thus received activatable product keys, the use of which is not subject to any time limit. We make use of our right and buy up a large number of non-activated keys from corresponding distributors.

This procedure enables us to offer our products at comparatively lower prices. 

Furthermore, the virtual inventory management also contributes to this, which is responsible for the elimination of delivery and storage fees, as well as the elimination of high personnel fees.

Accordingly, one should keep in mind that our earnings are far from being equal to those of the original owners. Rather, our focus is on satisfying our customers with the best possible price-performance ratio in order to gain their trust and to be able to enjoy a steadily growing clientele in the future. Thousands of customers have already been convinced by our quality - become one of them!
